SUBMITTING PROPOSALS

Single presentation proposals

Duration: 20 minutes | Deadline: Monday, November 30

During the submission process, submitters will need to answer a set of questions and attach a pdf of the full proposal. Abstracts (the attachment) should be about 600 words (one A4 page) and may include work from the second half of 2020 and future work that is expected to produce results in the first half of 2021. These should clearly indicate what work has already been done and what still has to take place.

Note 1: Whilst the final format of TNC21 is not yet agreed, presenters might need to give their talks either in a physical or virtual environment to support a hybrid format. NB: Safety of all participants is a priority for TNC21 organisers and, in the eventuality of a hybrid event, presenters who do not wish to travel to Brighton will not be required to do so.

Note 2: All speakers must be mentioned by name and organisation when submitting the proposal. For a single presentation, a maximum of 2 speakers are allowed for this slot.

Note 3: It is no longer possible to submit full session proposals.

Every presentation submission will be reviewed by the TNC21 Programme Committee. All submitters will be notified about the outcome in February 2021.

  • Authors names and affiliations (if different from the presenter)
